March Madness: Where to Watch the Big Game

With Selection Sunday just around the corner on March 17 and this year’s NCAA tournament beginning Tuesday, March 19, now’s the time to start thinking about where you’ll want to watch all the March Madness action.


Here are a few of our favorite spots to catch all the college sports action (and enjoy some delicious food and drink) around Kyle.


Centerfield – From baseball in the spring to football in the fall and basketball in the winter, there’s never a wrong time to pull up a stool at this local sports bar. You’re guaranteed to have a good eyeliner on the TV no matter where you sit, and you can’t beat the specials like taco and tequila Tuesday, whiskey and wings Wednesday, or chef’s specials on select game days. 


Glenn’s Bar and Grill – Glenn’s, located on the Plum Creek Golf Course, is an obvious hangout spot when the Masters tournament rolls around, but don’t overlook it for hoops action. The newly remodeled restaurant and bar serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but what really makes it a perfect March Madness spot is the 100” projector. Be sure to grab a good seat for the April 8 championship game because Glenn’s will no doubt be packed. 


Wicked Wings – There are few things that go better with March Madness than a basket of tasty wings and a cold beer… and Wicked Wings has both of them! In addition to its wing selection, the restaurant also offers up pizzas, burgers, and an assortment of sandwiches. And if you’re not ready to go home yet after the game is over, stay a little longer for karaoke. 


Willie’s Ice House – The folks at Willie’s are obviously doing something right because, for three decades, they’ve been bringing good times and cold beer to Texans across the state. The Houston-based chain has a location here in Kyle, and with multiple TVs and menu items like Chipolte Ribeye Tacos and their signature crawfish, you’re guaranteed not to be hungry during the basketball action. 


Bucks Backyard – Just up the road in nearby Buda, sports fans can find Bucks. This sports bar/restaurant/music venue is a shoo-in for a good time – no matter what night of the week you stop by. The bar’s main area has plenty of TVs so that you don’t miss a minute of sports action. Plus, there are pool tables, games like Big Buck Hunter, and a full food and drink menu. Come for the March Madness kickoff on Tuesday, and then swing back by for live music on Fridays and Saturdays. 

While it can be a heck of a lot of fun to cheer on your favorite team at a local restaurant or bar, sometimes the comfort of your own living room can’t be beaten. If you’d like to learn more about finding a home in the master-planned Crosswinds community, reach out to us today.
